Hurricane Cristobal may make waves on Long Island as it heads out to sea, forecasters say

Swells from Hurricane Cristobal provides an enhanced risk of dangerous rip currents for Long Island's Atlantic beaches, the National Weather Service said Tuesday.

Although the hurricane is forecast to pass well to the south and east, long period swells likely will bring an enhanced risk of dangerous rip currents from Wednesday through at least part of Friday, the service's Upton office said in a weather statement.

In addition to Long Island, the enhanced risk includes beaches in Queens and Brooklyn, the service said.

On its current path, Cristobal is of no threat to the U.S. coast, forecasters said.
